Dimitrios Zarkadas, a doctoral candidate in chemical engineering at NJIT, received a graduate student research award from the Separations Division of the American Institute of Chemicals Engineers (AIChE) earlier this month at the organization's annual convention in  Austin, Texas. Kamalesh K. Sirkar, PhD, distinguished professor of chemical engineering, was also honored as Zarkadas' dissertation advisor. >>
Chemical engineers at NJIT have developed a new filtration system to enable scientists and engineers to separate and purify two different kinds of proteins having relatively close molecular weight. Until now, doing such separations with membrane filtration was impossible. "To separate the good from the bad proteins is an important engineering breakthrough," said Kamalesh K. Sirkar, PhD, distinguished professor of chemical engineering and the project's lead researcher. "We believe that pharmaceutical companies will immediately be able to put our research to work." >>
Lisa Kardos, a senior majoring in chemical engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), will graduate on May 26, with a myriad of awards and accolades.   Kardos, of Cranford, an Albert Dorman Honor's College student with a grade point average of 3.7 in chemical engineering, was recently named the Newark College of Engineering's outstanding female engineer.  She is president of the Dorman Honor's College student council, and treasurer of Omega Chi Epsilon - the chemical engineering honor society.  She is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the Society of Women Engineers and Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honor society. She was the student speaker at the 2002 NJIT Celebration Scholarship fundraising event and assisted in recruiting women students to NJIT. She served on a strategic-planning taskforce at NJIT. >>
